Landscape as a new beginning; Steinse Groen, Gouda

by Stijlgroep on 10/12/2010

Landscape can be a new beginning,  Steinse Groen is located on the east-side of Gouda and is a long thin strip of land of about 200 metres wide and 1500 metres long. The area forms the transition between a residential area and polder land. In the past this area consisted of blue grassland and swamp land which was typical of the original landscape. An important part of those images is to be found back in a plan.
The present agricultural land is to be returned to blue grass and swamp land. A number of recreational facilities have been included, such as grass areas, playgrounds, playing facilities, a training circuit, etc.


The plan provides only for vegetation that is native to the area. Open water areas are established so that conditions are optimised for vegetation to grow spontaneously in the water/land transition belt. In the side wings rising vegetation native to swamp forests will be realised.
This green buffer returns a forgotten layer of quality and has matured in the years. It can be regarded as one of our benchmark-projects to show the potential of landscape.

steinsegroen bestaat al veel jaren woon er zelf aan, heb er in het verleden mijn eigenhuis en nog 54 woningen ontwikkeld. Woon op de verdieping. Met opslaande deuren naar het ontwerp van paul. Wij hebben na 15 jaar nog bijna elke dag het vakantie gevoel.
